Poetry: Misunderstood

Here is poem # 23 for the poetry pledge drive. Think of it as an asshole's elevator break-up speech. It's lacking a lot of visual imagery, I know, but it does capture the shit-heel sentiments pretty accurately. So, for now, just consider this the skeletal sketch of a poem that will become fully fleshed out at a later date.


Assholes commit this
To memory:

"For the record, I never said
I knew where this was
All going. I told you I was
Selfish and not very likely
To commit. Love is just
Something that's not
Built to last, and I am
Sad about that too. I'm sorry
You misunderstood me."
